falsifying wod times

This new guy comes in a couple of days ago and I notice that at the end of the wod he's lying about his times or scores to the point of always being ahead of the whole class of 10 to 15 individuals by a big margin. I notice it because he's next to me and I keep up with him or am ahead of him but he ends up whipping me on time. He consistently lies and it's taking all the fun out of the competing aspect of the wod. What's the best way of dealing with an individual like this?

yeah this. if you know that he is putting fake numbers, just ignore his score and and focus on the other times on the board. i guess i never really understood why people even concern themselves with things like that.

Re: falsifying wod times

If he's inflating his #'s by that much - believe me - you're not the only one that has noticed. Let him stroke his own ego, but he's going to isolate himself from the community aspect of Crossfit by doing this.

Re: falsifying wod times

You could do one of two things.

Torch his car in the parking lot, or

Just ignore it.

He obviously has some issues - how crappy does your life have to be to need to lie about your wod times to feel ok about yourself?

Re: falsifying wod times

Do a WOD where the class doubles up, one half of the class does the WOD, the other half scores, then switch...a slice of reality sometimes goes a long way. Make sure whoever is counting is legit/truthful to score his. FGB style workouts are great for that, but really anything short enough to fit two heats in during the class time is good.

This is what we do when we first notice a members that forgets how to count.

In the end, it's not really an issue unless they were competing for something other than pride.

In the end, he's paying for our facility and training. Not for me to care if he lies to himself.

If you notice....others do to.

By remembering that you are working out for your health and fitness. Nothing that anybody else does in their workout has any impact on what you do in your workout.

So focus on yourself and never mind the others. If they want to cheat themselves, let `em.

Re: falsifying wod times

You are there for you, trust me, everyone notices.

By competing with others, you become bitter. But competing with yourself, you become better. Not super true all the time, but does apply.
